John Whittingdale visited Down Hall Residential Home in Bradwell on Sea to lunch with staff and residents. A lively conversation ensued covering the changes to the Maldon District over the last 30 years to the current political debate around Brexit!

John said: “I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Down Hall and had a delicious lunch. It was a real pleasure to talk to the residents and staff as well as our local Priest, Steven Poss. I will certainly drop in again soon”.
